Visited newly developed Trufas groves that confirm the very god economy of the area. In general people walking on the streets were better dressed than I have observed in many other cities in Andalucia.

After visiting the Carabelas, you HAVE to go to this town just 4 kms away. Beautiful and very cute. If you want to visit the Pinzon's House, it;s only open during the morning
